Hello, 2nd trimester and sayonara, all day nausea! I am finally starting to feel human again. I am so eager to document this pregnancy as it will likely be our last. I plan to do weekly or bi-weekly bump updates where you can find all the details on what's going on with me physically and emotionally, as well as give you some inside tips on my go-to fashion and product must-haves while growing this little bean.
I am partnering with Comfortiva to show you a few shoes from their spring/summer line. First up, these are beautiful gladiator sandals which I will go into more detail below. So let's begin the Q & A, shall we?! Oh, and side note, this wall that says Dairy Block cracked us up because as we were shooting Perry was joking that this is going to be my nickname once my milk comes in (hehe!).
This swift dress from Nordstrom is the perfect mix of retro and elegance. I like how it's not too formal, and I can't get enough of the hints of romance with the open back and bishop selves. It is a wee bit short when you put your arms up, so I think it would look great with some black tights and ankle boots.
Love is in the air! I am such a sap for anything romance related so I thought I would round up a few items that Perry and I have been eyeing lately. We are spending Valentine's Day in Arizona, and we can't wait to escape the cold. Almost every year Perry and a handful of high school friends, together with wives and children (every year another child or 2), have gathered together to reunite and be silly. This great get together has traditionally fallen on President's Day weekend, and since we're adding on extra days this year, we will also get to spend Valentine's Day with family! We can't wait to slip into our swimsuits and hit up the heated pools and hot tubs.
There has been quite a lot of talk surrounding New Year's resolutions. Last year, I wrote about how my only resolution was to manage my difficult feelings in a healthier way (here). This year, I want to continue this path of emotional growth and management but do it in a way that is more compatible with what I need right now, which is kindness.
This is now my third month trying out Trunk Club. If you are unfamiliar with this personalized styling service from Nordstrom, then head over to my Instagram Stories and on the highlight reel titled Trunk Club, I did a Q&A on how it works and why I love it.
Well, you all voted for it, so here it is, the ultimate guide to buying stocking stuffers for your loved ones. I tried to pull items from varying price points to fit everyone's requests. I had a blast putting it together, and I really hope you find it helpful. Make sure you order everything within the next few days to ensure that the items arrive before the holiday festivities commence.
This weekend turned out to be a downward spiraling mess. If you saw my Instagram stories yesterday, then you know that I have 7 campaigns to shoot THIS weekend. We couldn't shoot in the house yesterday like I had planned because it was snowing and there was absolutely no natural light (meaning that it was too dark to get quality photos). Due to bad lighting, we tried to change the game plan and head to a local Christmas Tree nursery. The first place we went to was the furthest thing from a Christmas tree lot. It was more like a big dirt pile with planted fruit trees without leaves. Once we determined that it was not going to work to shoot there, our choices were to either turn around and go back home and say forget it or try to get to another place. The next spot that we knew about was another 30 minutes away. We had already been in the car for 20 minutes and my gut told me that it was going to be too far for Winter and that she would get carsick. But, I also knew that the deadlines were piling up and that we had to at least try to knock some stuff off our list.
So remember when I said I shot a pair of overalls and then left sans overalls in the bathroom of a coffee shop? WELL, these are that pair. Thank god the owner and his girlfriend at Luna Rose General Stores in Denver are saints and saved them for me! I was freaking out. Like who leaves overalls at a coffee shop? Apparently, I do!
So the blog platform that I operate on won't let me do too many round ups in one post (big sigh!). So I had to break them up. On this post, you will find discount codes and my round ups for each store. Don't forget about the wish list post that I did for Mom, Dad, Toddler and the home, HERE!
